Hammerfest 2013: Napalm Death – Saturday, 16 March 2013

Napalm Death at Hammerfest 2013 by Jenn McCambridge Thrash Hits

Napalm Death are the dependable grandfathers of grind. Not sure they’d be happy with that description but hey, we just said it anyway. They were bloody noisy at Hammerfest 2013, regardless.

Napalm Death arrive with a lurching jolt following the suffocating drone of the evening’s major doom acts. Sickeningly frenetic, Barney belches suflur against the disorientating backdrop of Napalm Death’s set; there’s a lot from latest album Utilitarian which sits comfortably against the more entrenched bastions of their back catalogue. The late billing for the band sees the arena emptier than it should be, but the godfathers of grindcore waste no time in decimating the crowd that remains.
